Last week we roasted a large Pekin duck on the farm for the first time! It was oh so delicious. I imagine it would have been just as good on its own, but I made an out of this world Glaze to go on top of it!

I’m sure many of you will be having family dinners this weekend in observance of the Easter holiday. I can’t help but think this glaze would be just as awesome on your Easter ham!

Apple Cider Vinegar, Maple Glaze:


  • One medium size pot and whisk
  • 1/2 C brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp paprika


  1. In a medium sized pot combine all ingredients and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce to low heat and simmer for 2-3 minutes until you reach a syrup-like consistency. Stir often and Check consistency often as well.
  3. Pour immediately over cooked ham, duck, or meat of choice.

This glaze is so easy and versatile. You could easily replace the maple syrup with honey, add a pinch of garlic, or swap the ACV with balsamic vinegar instead. It’s a sure fire way to jazz up your family dinner!

Happy Easter!

My name is Brittany but everyone calls me Britt. Well, everyone except my husband. He's never once called me Britt, always Brittany and sometimes even my middle name, Catherine. That's how I knew we were meant to be because I've never much felt like a "Brittany". I think it must be my old soul, but I find Catherine fits me better. Anyways, I'm a bossy wife, tired mother to toddler boys, self taught cook, and enthusiastic rookie farmer! I spend part of my days growing and raising humans, animals, and vegetables. I spend the other part of my days bringing the farm to the table and cooking up some wholesome grub. I married a good ole boy from Kentucky and somehow managed to charm him back to the Buckeye state. We bought a small piece of land in my hometown where we are learning how to do the farm and family thing. On this blog you'll be sure to see me navigate my way through farming, you'll read some laugh out loud motherhood moments, and you'll hopefully be inspired to get in the kitchen and cook some yummy food. So if your interested in the farm to table lifestyle or just plain nosy, follow along with me on this journey to self sufficiency!
